Shrimping in Charleston, SC.

This past weekend Micah and I took a road trip with The White’s down to Charleston, S.C. to go shrimping with Andrew’s uncles.

I don’t remember how the idea was born.  I think we were looking at each other’s pictures one day after bible study and we saw one of Andrew with a net in his mouth.  Micah wanted to try.  We started making tentative plans and nailed them down shortly after.

We took Friday off and carpooled Thursday night with Andrew’s mom too! (It’s her family that lives there).

I understand why shrimp is expensive now.  It is a lot of work.

Between making the bait out of fish meal, sticking the poles, yelling at the dolphins that were scaring off our shrimp, yelling at a drunk person filled boat that ran over our poles at one point, waiting on the tides, and then waiting some more, casting the net (Those bible verses about casting have a whole new meaning now), ripping their heads off, throwing fish that we would catch in our net back to the water, and getting back at 3 am with a rain storm coming in… we were exhausted and slept till 11 the next day!

The shrimp and grits, and shrimp alfredo made it all so worth it 🙂

It was an awesome weekend of bonding, gallivanting around downtown Charleston, drinking a lot of coffee, eating delicious southern food, and of course, shrimping.

Thank you White’s (and Duncans) for a great weekend!
